are accusing of -- us of injecting religion into plicts. i have no problem what the archbishop does. i have no problem with the evangelists do or what the priests on the left do. it didn't bother me that during the vietnam war democratic and republican governments were led by priests encouraging people to break the law in the adage of the civil disobedience thing. so our position, separation of church and state, pluralism, so no little kid with a minority religion of some sort will feel offended or left out or feel uncomfortable. but yes, prayer in schools, a voluntary basis. worked for many, many years until the supreme court ruled differently. and i'm glad we got this question. i think there has been too much said about religion and politics. we don't believe in denominationally 6 moving in. it wasn't our side that raised the question about our president, whether he was a good christian or not. [applause] so that's our position. separation of church and state, pluralism, respect for all. >> vice president bush, four years ago you would have allowed federal financing for abortions in cases
of their religion. -- observent of their religion. and it seemed to me they were being asked to speak to a swing voter group which is very important to them. which is women. young women. of childbearing age. who are paying very close attention. >> we're going to see that answer replayed. or we may not see it. but through direct mail, through targeted online advertising, to women and other things, the obama campaign, that they have a new opportunity here with congressman ryan's sort of suggestion that i think he said something like we changed these laws through democratic processes or something. so meaning that there could be some type of a law. a change coming up here. so in the whole suggestion of the supreme court, which really hasn't been a big topic of discussion. all these conversations are going on in sub groups. so that is what's going on right now. is sort of this microcampaign. they know exactly, specific areas of interest for each voter and that's why they've been microtargeting things and things going on which we can't even see. gwen: and talking a lot about the future of the supreme
religion has played in your own personal views on abortion? please talk about how you came to that decision. talk about how your religion played a part in that. and please, this is such an emotional issue for so many people in this country, please talk personally about this, if you could. congressman ryan. >> i don't see how a person can separate their public life from their private life or their faith. our faith informs us of everything we do. it informs me of how to take care of the vulnerable and make sure that people have a chance in life. now, you want to ask basically where why i am pro-life. it is not simply because of my catholic faith. that's a factor, of course. did you it's also because of reason and science. you know, i think about 10 1/2 years ago, my wife jan and i went to mercy hospital in janesville, where i was born, for our seven-week ultrasound for our first-born child and we saw that heart beat. our little baby was in the shape of a bean. and to this day, we have nicknamed our first-born child, liza, bean. now, i believe that life begins at conception. that's why those a
over football and religion. a judge has to decide whether cheerleaders can use religious messages during games. >>> and with more how the controversy is playing out. >> reporter: good morning. the game was the first since a judge heard arguments about whether the cheerleaders must stop using biblical messages. around here religion and high school football are two things people are passionate about. friday night under the lights in texas with the band, the fans, the players and something different, a banner with a christian message written by the school's cheerleaders. >> we thought it would be a great message. >> reporter: that message is at the center of a legal battle. the school superintendent banned the religious themed banners last month when it was claimed they violated the separation of church and state. the judge allowed the practice to continue until he rules and last night there were more religious signs than ever before. and friends and family who say the cheerleaders messages on the banners are free speech. >> both the united states constitution and the texas constitut
on the middle class, and that his own republican party has gone too far with its anti-tax religion. >> tax cutting is a religion. what do you mean by that? >> well, it's become, in the sense, an absolute-- something that can't be questioned, something that's gospel, something that's sort of embedded in the catechism. and so scratch the average republican today, and he'll say, "tax cuts, tax cuts, tax cuts." >> cut taxes. >> cutting taxes. >> make the tax cuts permanent. >> it's rank demagoguery. we should call it for what it is. if these people were all put into a room on penalty of death to come up with how much they could cut, they couldn't come up with $50 billion when the problem is $1.3 trillion. so to stand before the public and rub raw this anti-tax sentiment, the republican party, as much as it pains me to say this, should be ashamed of themselves. >> this from ronald reagan's old budget director, architect of the largest tax cut in american history? but he doesn't let the democrats off the hook. he says he cringes when he hears the president say things like this. >> i believe we o
such as this, and i would like to ask you both to tell me what role your religion has played in your own perm views -- personal views on abortion. please talk about how you came to that decision, how your religion played a part in that, and please, this is such an emotional issue for so many people in the country, please talk personally about this if you could. congressman ryan. ryan: i don't see how a person can separate public life from private life or faith. faith informs us of everything we do, how to take care of the vulnerable, how to make sure that people have a chance in life. now, you with respect asking why i'm pro-life, but it's not simply cause ofmy catholic faith. that's a factor of course, but it's also because of reason and science. you know, i think about ten and a half years ago, my wife jane and i went to mercy hospital in janesville where i was born for our seven week ultrasound for the first born child. we saw that heart beat, our little baby was in the shape of a bean, and to this day, we have nicknamed our first born child, "bean." now, i believe that life begins at conc
a pastor who is now bringing religion into a political conversation when you use comparing these people to demons. what do you say to the people who say that maybe this is not a place that the church should venture into. i mean, this is a political conversation. you should be more concerned about saving souls and leading a congregation. >> well, that's why organizations coin the phrase souls to the polls. jesus once said, render unto caesar and render unto god what is god's. we have government ordained by god. if you look at moses, he was involved in government. if you look at joseph, he was involved in government. all throughout the bible, i mean, in the bible you see strong personalities who were involved in government. it is a right. we must support those things that will provide the quality of life and will provide a standard of living for human beings. so, any time you suppress that, any time you take away that, it has to be demonic and diabolical. >> the last question, i want to talk about policy, aside from politics. and the president endorsed gay marriage as a policy. do you thi
liberties in this country. they are infringing on the freedom of religion by infringing on catholic charities, catholic churches, catholic hospitals. our church should not have to sue our federal government to maintain religious liberties. with respect to abortion, the democratic party said that they wanted it to be safe, legal, and rare. now they support it without restrictions and with taxpayer funding. the vice president went to china and said that he sympathized or would not second- guess their one-child policy of forced abortions and sterilization. that's pretty extreme. >> my religion defines who i am. i have been a practicing catholic my whole life. it is particularly -- has particularly informed my social doctrine. the catholic doctrine talks about taking care of those who cannot take care of themselves, people who need help. with regard to abortion, i accept my church's position on abortion as life begins at conception. i accept that in my personal life, but i refused to impose that on equally devout christians, muslims, jews. unlike my friend, congressman. have at believe
no religion. one in five say they do not belong to a religion. interesting peek into the spiritual state of the nation, i guess. >> the first time it's dropped below 50%. if owe you're a nondenominational christian and don't associate yourself as protestant, which i would say i am protestant. i go to nondenominational church. you don't fall into the protestant category. there may actually be christians who are nondenoms, which isn't classified as a protestant. >> in an election year, through the political prism. the study found americans with no religion support abortion rights and gay marriages at a higher rate than the u.s. public at large, and most of the people tend to vote democratic as well. you wonder if the increase in nonreligious folks, identify as nonreligious if that tips any political scale in election year. but it is a slowly evolving thing. but interesting look into america. >> but a first. >> it is. >> your tuesday forecast. everybody, showers in the upper midwest, twin cities, green bay. spreading later to chicago and kansas city. morning sprinkle in the northeast. thund
to take care of the vulnerable, of how to make sure people have a chance in life. >> my religion defines who i am and i've been a practicing catholic my whole life. and it is particularly informed my social doctrine, catholic social doctrine talks about taking care of those who can't take care of themselves. people who need help. >> let's take the controversial issue of abortion. ryan and biden's views could not be more different. >> now, i believe that life begins at conception. that's why those -- those are the reasons why i'm pro-life. i understand this is a difficult issue. and respect people who don't agree with me on this, but the policy of a romney administration will be to oppose abortion with the exceptions for rape, incest and life of the mother. >> with regard to abortion, i accept my church's position on abortion as a -- we call a defeaty doctrine. life begins at conception, that's the church's judgment. i just refuse to impose that on others, unlike my friend here, the congressman. >> now, the push is on for the catholic vote. according to this pew forum on religion and publ
